CANBERRA, March 27 (Xinhua) -- The search in the southern Indian Ocean for signs of missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 was suspended Thursday due to bad weather.

The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) said through its Twitter feed that all aircraft were returning to Perth and all ships were leaving the search area.

Six military aircraft from four countries and five civil aircraft were scheduled to join the search Thursday along with four Chinese ships and one Australian vessel.

The search area is more than 2,500 km from the southwest Australian city of Perth.

On Wednesday, the Malaysian government announced that analysts had found in satellite photos from France 122 unidentified objects floating in the southern Indian Ocean search area.
